As learners move away from desktop to mobile, edtech innovators have to meet the growing need for classrooms to be easily accessible on every device.
Today, Moodle – the world’s open source learning platform – officially introduces its latest step towards excellent mobile learning experiences – the Branded Moodle Mobile App.
“Around 70% of global internet traffic is via mobile devices and this figure is expected to rise quickly in the next few years,” commented Dr Martin Dougiamas, CEO and Founder of Moodle.
“Since we released the Moodle Mobile App in April 2013 on Google Play and Apple Store, we have also seen, to date, more than 300% rise in the number of app installations.”
“Statistics are telling us that our learners want to have their learning easily accessible, wherever they are – on the train to school or work, while sitting during lunchtime, or travelling between class, work and other activities.”
“This is why we have put a lot of attention into Moodle’s mobile features and are pleased to introduce the Branded Moodle Mobile App to meet this rising mobile learning trend.”
Simply put, the Branded Moodle Mobile App is all of the latest functionalities and stability of the generic Moodle Mobile App combined with an organisation or institution’s own custom branding.
The Branded Moodle Mobile App is fully developed, published and maintained by the Moodle HQ team so that organisations and institutions do not need to invest on considerable resources and time to have their own learning app.
“The Branded Moodle Mobile App is a hassle-free solution for institutions and workplaces that use Moodle to have their courses available to their learners on a mobile app, with their own branding, and have it completely supported and maintained by Moodle,” said Dr Dougiamas.
“In addition to custom branding, regular maintenance and new features, a Branded Moodle Mobile App is also about simplified login so that your learners can get onto their “classrooms” at a touch of a button.”
“There is also the popular offline capability, allowing users to participate in the majority of activities in the app when they are not connected to a network.”
“Other app features – from messaging, to submitting assignments, taking course notes and doing quizzes – are also available. All of these features in the Branded Moodle Mobile App will make learning truly mobile.”
Getting a Branded Moodle Mobile App is also hassle free. Moodle’s global network of 82 Certified Partners in 43 countries worldwide are ready to help make every organisations and institutions’ app the best it can be.
“Moodle’s mission has and will always be about providing powerful, flexible education tools in the hands of educators and learners,” said Dr Dougiamas.
“It has been a key part of operations for leading education institutions, including California Institute Technology and Columbia, as well as big organisations such as the United Nations, Google and US Defence force through to local high schools globally..”
“We are pleased to advance our mission with the introduction of the Branded Moodle Mobile App, that will allow organisations and institutions to address the growing trend in mobile learning.”
